Southern Obstetric and Gynecologic Seminar Annual Meeting


Online registration is now closed.
Walk-ins are welcome!

Now in its 68th season, the Southern Obstetric and Gynecologic Seminar is a three-day educational event designed to address relevant and timely topics in women's health for the busy provider. Distinguished lecturers and leading experts in the field of obstetrics and gynecology will present clinical best practices and care recommendations that the provider can easily implement to improve patient care and outcomes.

The content covered in this year's conference was derived from assessing the information needs and educational gaps reported by Southern's physician and advanced practice provider (APP) membership. Information will be delivered through a series of four lectures each day, case studies, and question-and-answer sessions. Lectures will address chronic pelvic pain, medical malpractice, gender-affirming care, advances in minimally invasive surgery, fibroids, obstetric positioning techniques, legislative updates impacting Ob/Gyns, and opioid prescribing in obstetrical practice.

Accompanying the academic portion of the annual meeting, Southern's members value the opportunity to interact socially with longstanding and new members. This year, Southern returns to the Biltmore Estate—George W. Vanderbilt's summer house.

Activities during the Annual Meeting include:
Wednesday evening's Welcome Reception will be held in The Loft at Cedric's Tavern located in Antler Hill Village®.

Friday evening Dinner Reception is at the Antler Hill Barn.
